White Webbing on Gardenia

Anonymous added on April 30, 2014 | Answered

There is a white webbing (similiar to spider webbing) on the top of my gardenia plant. Some of the leaves are turning yellow with brown spots, but there is a lot of new growth with new buds. What causes the white webbing and the leaves to turn yellow? What do I use and how to fix the problem? The plants are still in the original pots. I take them outdoors (south facing) during day and bring them in during night.

The webbing may be an indication of spider mites, which can be treated with neem oil. These articles will provide more info:,
